In Google Sheets, it is common to work with numbers and dates, but sometimes you may need to keep text in a cell. The good news is that it is easy to do this with Google Sheets. In this tutorial, we will show you how to keep text in a cell.

The first step is to open the Google Sheets spreadsheet that you want to work with. Then, click on the cell where you want to add text. You can then type the text directly into the cell.

Another way to add text to a cell is to use the formula bar. To do this, click on the cell where you want to add text and then click on the formula bar at the top of the screen. Type the text that you want to add into the formula bar and then press enter.

You can also use the "text" function to format the cell as text. For example, =text(A1,"@") will format the cell A1 as text.

It is important to note that when a cell is formatted as text, it may not be able to be used in calculations. However, it will retain its text format even if it looks like a number.
